I've noticed over the last few months that almost ANY conversation I try to have with my 13 year old DD turns into a disagreement. A good example was last night on the way home from church we were discussing a youth trip she left on this morning. Our preacher is taking a group of 15 teens to the creation museum and an amusement park today and tomorrow. I told her to really be on her best behavior and how nice it was of our preacher and his wife to take them on this trip. It's a really big responsibility to look after so many on an out of town trip. She responded by telling me that it wasn't that big of a deal for him to take them. After all, most of of the kids going are of driving age. What? I attempted to explain how it was still a huge responsibility and she continued making up reasons it wasn't.
She is overall a really good kid. I just don't understand why all of the sudden she seems to think I'm stupid. Ideas?
